DIY: Easy Halloween Pirate Pumpkin

 Easy Halloween Pumpkins

Say hello to Mr. Bandido and Mr. Pirate, they’re vampires by the way!

At first I just wanted to carve some eyes and add some vampire teeth with or pumpkins this year, but when I was shopping I spotted a package of mustaches and eyebrows for Halloween costumes that look pretty funny and just perfect for the pumpkins. The project turned out awesome. I love my new mean-funny little guys.

Halloween project cost: $9 dollars for both pumpkins.

 Easy Halloween Pumpkins


1. Clean out the pumpkin. Make sure you get out all those seeds!

2. Carve some circles for the eyes and a rectangle for the mouth. The vampire teeth fit perfectly in a rectangle.

3. Glue the eyebrows and mustache to the pumpkin and add the teeth.

4. Personalize your pumpkins! Add a hat to make a Mr. Bandido or a bandana and an eye patch for Mr. pirate, an earring looks cool too!

For the eye patch: Cut a piece of black fabric to make the patch, you can use fabric, paper, felt or foam, make a semi circle and glue it or poke some hole through it for the yarn.
